Engaging Youth Through Storytelling and Technology with Bijan Machen

Bijan Machen has a passion for the future of education and the importance of engaging our youth through storytelling. His interest began when he created a 501(c)(3) for kids called AthleTECH that combined athletics and technology.

As a former athlete, he brought in NFL and NBA players, and with the help of Microsoft, they collaborated and taught the kids how to code. His goal was to get students excited about a boring subject, and he knew he needed to find a creative way to keep their interest.

This venture is what ultimately led him to start an entire company around art, education, and entertainment, and today he has found a successful way to blend all of these worlds.
